Thanks for your answer (See included message below),
but I'm afraid it's not exactly what I want:

I want the function fun to RETURN, say x^2, but PRINT "-FUN-".
It's like Graphics, that PRINTS "-Graphics-", but RETURNS a more
complicated object, that it's possible to re-use for any other problem:

In[1]:= g = Graphics[...]

Out[1]= -Graphics-

In[2]:= Show[%]

Out[2]= -Graphics-

It's like the difference between InputForm and OutputForm...

The function to solve your problem seems to be simple:

fun[x_]:= ( x^2 >>> "abc"; (* This appends the result x^2 to your
(existing) file abc.
(Example for your action)
"-FUN-" (* Alternative: Print["-FUN-"]


I hope, it helps
